dhw: Of course you are entitled to believe whatever you wish to believe, and to criticize those who cannot share your belief, but since you cannot find any logical explanation for this specific method of fulfilling this specific purpose, perhaps you could simply say that your fixed belief is based on blind faith. That would be the end.

DAVID: My steps are simple: God exists. So do humans who are amazingly complex, and an unlikely result of the evolution which proceeded them. We differ in kind. Therefore we are God's main purpose in His creation. The rest of your discussion are criticisms of my attempts at possible explanations of the methods God used. And yes, they can be criticized becasue they are all unproven propositions.

dhw: Once again you resort to “main” purpose, which means there are other purposes, but when challenged, you can’t think of any. For argument’s sake, I am accepting that “God exists”, and I do not doubt that we amazingly complex beings exist, but so do/did billions of other life forms, lifestyles and natural wonders extant and extinct, all species differ in kind, and you have no idea why your God would have specially designed every single one of them to eat or be eaten by one another, even though according to you his one and only purpose was to specially design H. sapiens. Please stop editing your own fixed beliefs, leaving out the bits that don’t fit together. All propositions are unproven, but the reason for my criticism is that your combined propositions do not make sense, even to you (we are not “privy” to your God’s reasons for using your version of his method to fulfil your version of his one and only purpose). Your fixed belief in this combination of fixed beliefs requires blind faith. The end?

I'll stick to my position nad you to yours. the end.
